When you go grocery shopping, you may have noticed that a lot of the fruits and vegetables you buy will be identified as “locally-grown” or have their state/country of origin identified on their label. The benefits for locally grown produce include: fresher fruits and vegetables, support for local/state economy, and even reduced environmental impact, since the produce does not need to travel far. Less truck, plane, or boat travel reduces pollution. “Local” is also important for business, not just food.
A small business is better than a monstrous national corporation and if that business is local, it offers even more benefits. The customer often gets lost in the size of a large “we have locations everywhere!” business. The owners of the business may spend so much time trying to make sure the operations of each location is running the way it should be that they forget about customer service and that “personal touch” that makes customers feel like the business actually cares about them.
A local small business can not only provide customers with genuine personal attention, but it is invested in its community. It actually cares about its neighborhood and the people that live there. By giving a local company your business, you are supporting local business owners, not multi-millionaire CEOs that have so many businesses that they may become detached from their customers and business goals. You support your community and your local economy, and, in return, you are treated like a neighbor and a friend. STORBOX is such a business.
At STORBOX, both our Pasadena general self-storage facility and The Wine Grotto are locally owned and operated, lending our customers the neighborly but professional treatment and personal attention they deserve. If you are a supporter of local business and have a few too many things that need to fit into too little a space, we can help. Call us today to find out if self-storage is for you at (626) 793-9888.
